Dang, I guess I did say that. Guilty as charged.

I still think it strange. I think a lot of the shit they sold is lame - golf balls? But it kept the machine rollin ( and people they cared about in jobs ), and kept the mystique too. Personally I think these marketing things were for other people. Shit, the music and tours became about other people ( staff ), which did wonders to contribute to Jerry's demise. Phil says as much in his book.

Whatever man. To each their own. It's not like I'm all obsessed with it. Nor am I obsessed with having to worship everything they ever said or did. Finest band ever and they have brought me more joy than any other music - and I like a LOT of music. That's enough for me.

Enjoy your ties, and possibly your Jerry action figure or beanie baby. Maybe while sipping some Jerry brand wine. It's actually Clos DuBois with a Jerry label stuck on. It's still pretty good.

LOL! That's great.

Yeah but Jerry never made ties either just the art that was put on them so then the wine is the same thing. The only difference is that at least he was alive to give the go ahead on the ties. Not so with other stuff ( like the cutesie doll ).

They have brought everyone a lot of joy. I don't know if anyone is aware, there is a lot of complete Dead concerts from the 70' to the 90's at tela.sugarmegs.org. They have two places to look for the concerts. They only allow downloading from 5 PM EST to 9 AM weekdays. The weekends are 24 hrs. The foour shows from 4-26-4-29-71, that someone mentioned earlier are there, plus loads more. They have to be downloaded as whole concerts, but it makes you feel like you are there. Hope someone else likes the site.

I haven't gone for any of the Dead stuff there cus it's all MP3 and there's so much Dead out there already. But for everything else ... WHOAH! Most extensive eclectic quality live collection anywhere I've seen. I can't dig with the tracks not being divided though. SOME day I'll get around to figuring that audacity out I hope.
